Always thought BOS is the East Coast version of SEA. But doesn’t metro BOS has a wealthier, stronger economy than SEA?
Maybe strip out the connections and only look at OD pax to/from BOS and SEA.

That's hardly a BOS issue. More like every airport that is not a southern hub.
IAH is a huge North-South hub so they get a lot of traffic to/from the rest of the country connecting to warm destinations.


Not saying it was just a BOS issue, but shows just how it is as a comparison, the fact that we are even this close to IAH now, says a lot for the growth of BOS over the past few years and the stagnation of IAH following the oil price drop in previous years. 10 years ago, we wouldnt' have even been in the same league as we are now, and says a lot.


Yup, 26 million vs 40 million 10 years ago :o
What's mind blowing is that IAH only grew by ~4 million pax over the last 10 years. Talk about stagnation.

Don’t forget HOU. I suspect BOS is gaining share from PVD and MHT whereas HOU seems to be growing pretty steadily too. Plus with the UA/CO merger DEN is a superior choice for east west connections, now that UA has better alternative than CO had 10 years ago. But saying that BOS growth damn impressive, especially internationally. I just don’t agree that Houston has stagnated.

That list represents total passengers including connections and international passengers and what I linked to shows domestic O&D traffic only - a totally different measure. He doesn't need to fix anything.

No he doesn't, I don't believe those numbers in the article and in any case, those are from 2016, iyerhari's numbers are 2018. No way BOS did 16m connecting pax, Massports own numbers through June 18, show 5.8% connecting pax (94.2% O&D) which means around 2.2m connecting based on 40.9m total. 2.2m is less than 200K a month or 6,000 a day honestly i am not sure i believe that either, because that seems too far the other way but Massport have been consistently reporting 94% O&D for the past few years.

I get it.
But my point is that it is "unfair" to compare Boston to hubs that historically see a lot of connecting pax. Boston will NEVER be a large connector hub.
You're not going to compare Boston to London either. It will be useless.
So to get a real measure of passenger flow, perhaps look at pax departing OD to Asia only, or whatever destination. But including connections you might as well not list Boston.

RAM got their approval the other day and the schedule is ready to go.
Start date 6/22
822 seats each way weekly

AT210 CMN1705 – 1930BOS 788 146
AT211 BOS2115 – 0850+1CMN 788 146

Operational frequency changes to Day 357 from 01OCT19.

https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... june-2019/

Now I have to figure out how to Shoehorn this into my Terminal E analysis because I need a size 14 shoe to do it.
FGITD, any help you can provide with those who generally get towed off gates between 7 and 9 would be greatly appreciated

Regardless of the reasons, in 2008 IAH+HOU saw a combined 50,484,378 pax.
In 2018, they saw a combined 55,327,328 pax. That's a growth of only ~5 million passengers over 10 years that started at the end of the last recession. It may not qualify as a stagnation but it sure doesn't look good.

As far as I know, only JAL, Copa, and TK tow off anywhere near that time range. And possibly AZ, but I believe they arrive later.

Based on what I've heard, it seems the only real "guarantees" are BA at 12, EK at 11, LH at 10, and now allegedly AF/KL at 9.

Will be very interesting to see the numbers out of E for 2019. A lot of capacity changes for the summer, and it doesn't seem like anyone downsized.

I wonder if KL now also being in E will put any pressure on improving the AF lounge situation. Now that BA, EK, and LH all have their fancy new lounges its even more of a stark situation. Although at least the VS lounge isn't bad. Its small, but very well done.

I can't pretend to know much about lounges, but I do know a little about the construction plans, which might shed some light on this. Take it all with a grain of salt, because this is dated info and this stuff changes weekly.

The current AF lounge is set to be consumed by the necessary expansion of CBP. In exchange, AF are given first pick of the new lounges in the new expansion. These will be located along the backside of the new terminal, and therefore will not have a great view of the ramp, but instead have spectacular views of the city.

Again, I have no real clue what's going on now, but awhile ago that was the plan. Wouldn't be too surprised to see AF, KL, KE all go in together on a Skyteam Lounge though.

SEA has grown exceptionally well over the past 5 years. You can see the trajectory based on the data. The AMZN, MSFT effect - but the fact is they are doing exceptionally well. See the comparatives of SEA, IAH and BOS for the past 6 years and u can see the difference in the growth.

Year SEA BOS IAH SEA-BOS IAH-BOS
2018 49,849,340 40,941,925 43,807,539 8,907,415 2,865,614
2017 46,934,619 38,412,419 40,696,216 8,522,200 2,283,797
2016 45,737,115 36,288,042 41,692,372 9,449,073 5,404,330
2015 42,340,537 33,449,580 43,023,224 8,890,957 9,573,644
2014 37,498,267 31,634,445 41,254,384 5,863,822 9,619,939
2013 34,826,741 30,218,631 39,799,414 4,608,110 9,580,783
2012 33,223,111 29,235,643 39,890,756 3,987,468 10,655,113

BOS is now coming at a space that comes closer to fortress hubs and it is commendable despite BOS not being a true hub or a single carrier monopoly for any of the carrier (B6 has the highest market share and they have approx. 33-35%).

O&D rankings by airport: https://orlandoairports.net/site/uploads/OandD_Rank.pdf

The number quoted by VS4ever looks consistent based on the site for BOS. Approx. 93.1% of pax are O&D and the remainder 6.9% are connecting. I will assume most of the connections maybe coming though DL or B6. You can see the details for SEA yourself on the extent of connections.

That actually makes a lot of sense to me. A big old Skyteam Lounge when the additional gates are added. Wonder if it will ever lead to DL bringing over their international departures to free up space at A.

well the expansion hasn't even started yet, and somehow most of the gates are already spoken for. Bear in mind all those hardstands along the wall will be gone, so the long stays will most likely be on gate the whole day.

DL tends to arrive midday, and leave early afternoon. Occupies quite a few gates, for quite a awhile. Mix in their connections, lounges, branding desires etc, and I don't see them moving.

Whereas terminal E is generally the land of the turnaround. And while safety is a priority of course, I think there's a little bit of competition to see who's fastest

BOS now gets close to joining the elite club to fly to 5 inhabited continents: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa. I was in the taxi last week from Logan and the taxi driver was incidentally was from Casablanca. He was excited that he could do a nonstop trip vs. having to travel to CDG or LHR and spend time in the layover zone.

It's not too surprising that AF will be getting a new lounge. Phase 1 will have space for 4 new airline clubs.

About AT BOS-CMN: Wasn't there a proposed schedule with an 01:00ish departure?

This one seems better geared for B6 feed.

New terminal in CMN will be fully operational by start date too so connecting may not be the horror show I've read on here and on other sites.

Anyone have any predictions for what happens with the HND slot process discussed here? viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1415015

Some are guessing at DL applying for BOS-HND. The only way I see them applying for it is to be a hedge at not getting a JFK-HND slot.

I do think JL could switch to HND to focus primarily on Boston-Japan O&D. They would also still serve the big non-Japanese markets from Haneda. Does anyone know if JL feeds Jetstar Japan at Narita?

My true wish would be for NH to jump in here.

No but he wrote off Cape Verde as an African country. BOS joined the 5 continent club over a year ago when TACV came back to BOS.

Dude - did you just write off the continent inhabited by Kangaroos?!! :duck:


No but he wrote off Cape Verde as an African country. BOS joined the 5 continent club over a year ago when TACV came back to BOS.


Yet Massport (for now) see TACV as European, i wonder if they will move them when RAM starts

Massport probably wants a little more pomp and circumstance to start flights to Africa than TACV could provide. For one thing, I'm not even sure they're a terminal tenant, and might be treated more like a semi regular charter.

That said, I heard there's going to be some big launch celebrations for KLM, Korean, and RAM. Hopefully someone gets some nice pics of them coming in the first days!

Ewwww! That is so wrong on so many levels.
Nevertheless BOS has had non-stop service to Africa since January 2018 and with that it is part of the 5 continent club. Massport doesn't get to re-invent geography :)

Airbazar - if you see the latest Logan passenger details for the month, there is a line item called North Africa - it is blank for now. Once Casablanca starts, it would be filled. But Massport currently does not include Cape Verde as Africa ;) Australia is blank so I am hoping they maybe next.

Those are not continets. They are regions. My point is it doesn't matter what Massport says or thinks. Cape Verde is an African country and there is non-stop service to Cape Verde. Is that so difficult to understand?
North Africa is not a continent either, and neither is Middle East or Central America. How Massport aggregates the passenger statistics is completely irrelevant. BOS has non-stop service to 5 continents.
Even your original post implies that: "BOS now gets close to joining the elite club to fly to 5 inhabited continents: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa."
You didn't include Massport's regions in your post. You included continents.

Just booked a flight on it in August. Will be my first experience on the A380.

Good catch - I stand corrected and thanks for letting me know. I did not know about Cape Verde much and should have checked the details. The quotes here gave me an opportunity to see some stunning pics of some of the beaches and they are like Wow!

Hey, sorry if I sounded a bit too harsh with my reply. As an African (born and partially raised), I get a little ticked off when people mis-represent the continent which happens a little too often :)

Which runway is currently down at Logan? I heard one was inoperable due to construction. I'm guessing, based on the layout of BOS, that this will restrict arrival/departure flow if the wind is in a certain direction.

Not sure about yesterday, but -- interestingly enough -- NOTAMs have 4R/22L OOS I am guessing for plowing? Either way planes are landing 15R right now (a rarity, particularly during a storm)! I thought I heard a few earlier but -- where I am, in Medford -- we get both 33L departures and arrivals coming from the direction of Williamstown (I believe usually on JFUND and formerly QUABN arrivals) heading to 4R/27/33L coming by, so I figured it was the latter.

NOTAMs also say that 15L/33R is closed until 2/19.

Does this mean loads are so great all classes at full fare? Should we expect more capacity?

There's another thread out there suggesting that the route is being terminated.

Question: How frequently do flights from BOS-LAX divert for fuel?

I know it happens, as I diverted on a VX A320 in 2011 to LAS, and a family member was on AA1161 today a 321 and they informed them before the flight that they would be diverting to STL for fuel.

I know I have read in the past that this happens more frequently than most would expect.
(A359,A343/A346,A332,A319/320/321,A220-100)(B788,B772,B762,B752,B744/B748,B732/B737/B738,B717)(E190,E145)(CRJ100/200, Dash 8-200)(MD-83)

It’s odd that AV would only make changes to 4 of their 6 weekly BOS-BOG flights. If they were phasing this flight out why didn’t this change apply to all flights?

There is a thread discussing the high frequency of trans-cons needing to make a put stop for fuel due to the screaming jet stream as well as poor weather in California. AA 1161 pulled up in MSP today.

No. This means they are discontinuing the route. Only load full fare to make it unattractive to purchase before pulling out of GDS on the weekend schedule update.

Does the Avianca pullout means that BOS has peaked? Or is this just uniquely related to Colombia?

I think it's more related to the fact that people aren't really buying into BOG as a connecting hub to S.America where Brazil is the biggest market and once GRU-BOS was started whatever little valuable market there was has opted to fly with LATAM or simply there isn't enough of a market for 2 airlines.

Perhaps you are right. With LA providing nonstop and COPA at PTY for connecting flights, perhaps BOG was one too many.
